The Pursuit of App-iness

Bad news 007, after adding in all the optional extras, your personal tax is now well over £1 million I have a new app, nothing that interesting (sadly), this one calculates the best way to buy a car. personally or through a business; PCP or outright purchase; not probably as much fun as angry birds but it could be a real money saver. I have said this before: company cars are not the perk they used to be at one time and getting free fuel is usually equivalent to getting a pay cut. But people still get excited when these items are included in a salary package. My advice, check that the numbers add up (or get someone else to, perhaps someone with a cool car buying app). From April things get more interesting (read: complicated) as some new tax rules come in. For a start you won’t be able to use a salary sacrifice to save on national insurance, and also the benefit in kind rates are going up fairly steeply (especially for electric and other very low emission cars). Finally there is a new extra tax (£310 for the first 5 years) on cars costing over £40,000. I have no idea what that is supposed to be for (apart from raising extra tax!) If you are looking to buy a new car soon getting in before 1 April is probably a good move (warning: but not necessarily, especially if you plan on something which uses a lot of fuel). Again you need to find someone with an app. Anyway, whatever your plans for the weekend are; have a... read more

Life’s a beach!

It’s snowing ( a bit here, but melting so everything is slushy and wet… and cold) so I thought the picture above might cheer you all up a bit. Or not, you may be thinking, “that’s out of my reach, why taunt me with it?”. Well actually it’s not out of your reach at all. It’s Scarborough, so only an hours drive away!! Mind you it could be Scarborough in Tobago in the Caribbean. Which would explain the lack of donkeys, amusement arcades and people with white legs. Anyway it does illustrate the importance of being specific with your “goals” (As you will doubtless recall from an earlier post I don’t do Goals! as I find them a bit demoralizing. I prefer processes but you still need to point yourself in the right direction. And keep in mind that each step of the way should be (as far as possible) fun, otherwise you may falter and fail before even getting part way there. Even though there is little but ocean between here and the Caribbean doesn’t stop you from enjoying the journey, you just have to relax and take pleasure in each passing moment, the waves, the birds, the dolphins swimming by. (Metaphorically speaking of course, most people fly, but that’s partly a symptom of our modern, “I want everything now” world) But however you choose to travel, enjoy the journey. Have a great week... read more

Ah, the blessed relief of February

I love February, yes it’s cold and dull for the most part and often snowy but it has one main redeeming feature… It’s not January. The tax return season has ended and I get at least 2 months of (relative) peace before April. So my New Year starts here. Office spring clean, looking for a new sofa (By an amazing coincidence dfs and scs have sales on; who would have thought??). In fact lots of things I have been putting off all through January can now be done. Plus (and more relevant for all the non accountants out there), the daffodils are starting to flower, the nights are noticeably shortening and little by little the average temperature is starting to climb. Spring is again on it’s way. Oh, and if you are going to Farndale, some of the best displays are at the bottom of the dale, but you need to be prepared to get your feet muddy. Have a great week... read more

Onward and upward

Fortunately keeping up a blog a week wasn’t a resolution for 2017 as I missed last week’s. In fact as you may have gathered from the post of 6th January I haven’t actually made ANY resolutions for this year, or set any goals or made any grand plans. Yes there are things I want to do but goal setting is a problem. I want to visit the US this year. That’s a goal but I either do or I don’t, I book a holiday and go or I don’t. No inbetweens, no “I nearly made it”. But with a lot of other goals getting 95% or 80% of the way there can still be an achievement (learning a new skill/language/musical instrument for instance), the problem here is: How do you set a goal in the first place? How do I know how fast I can learn to play an instrument or to speak a language? Also what do I mean by that? Do I want to be able to get by in Italian on holiday or speak it fluently to live there. How would I measure this anyway? It’s very easy to understand everything one day and feel like a novice the next because you are up against a strong accent or an unfamiliar topic. As I said last time all you can do is set a mini goal of (say) practicing 1 hour a day (in the right way) and see what happens. Setting a long term goal could well be limiting or demoralizing.  Some people are inspired by visualizing themselves playing a piece of music or having a conversation... read more
